WILMINGTON — A college and career information session for Spanish-speaking families will be hosted at CFCC’s North Campus this month.

It’s scheduled to take place on Wednesday, July 17, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at 4500 Blue Clay Road in Castle Hayne. The information session is open to all New Hanover and Pender County families, students, and staff.

It will feature informative presentations and resources on planning, applying, and paying for college. Details will be provided about CFCC’s programs, and a resource fair will be held so prospective students can learn about CFCC’s services.

“At Cape Fear Community College, we are committed to providing opportunities to every student in our community,” Jocelinne Perfecto, Latino outreach coordinator, said. “We want to make sure every prospective and current student feels comfortable and is confident in their ability to pursue their educational goals.”

Bilingual staff members will be available to provide translation assistance and answer any questions. RSCP here.
